Tulane University is one of the top 50 undergraduate universities among the thousands in the United States, and is one of the leading Universities in graduate research in the South. Since its founding in 1834, its graduates have enjoyed the benefits of this outstanding reputation, both national and internationally.
A new graduate program track in chemical physics has been introduced at Tulane in 2017. The program invites qualified students with interests in research areas that involve both chemistry and physics. The program combines faculty of the two departments (Chemistry and Physics and Engineering Physics). Thesis directions of students in the program cover a range of topics spanning from spectroscopy of various flavors, to gas-phase dynamics, surface science, materials, chemical dynamics, quantum chemistry, statistical mechanics, surface science, and catalysis. The course work is flexible and tailored to suit educational objectives within various research directions in the program.
